Recall that Osimhen was replaced late in the Round of 16 win over Cameroon by Paul Onuachu.

But captain Troost-Ekong played the entire duration of the encounter.

However, sights from the Super Eagles training, show that the two players had bandages strapped to their legs and did not train with the group on Monday.
